Forklift Safety White Paper
Forklifts or, as OSHA classifies them, Powered Industrial Trucks, are used in nearly every industry. They are a useful tool, but unfortunately many people are injured driving and using forklifts. OSHA has recognized this and has promulgated very complete driver training requirements.
Training should be customized to address the unique aspects of your work environment as well as the specific job fuctions that drivers would have at your facility. Training can be made for your specific work place, purchased on-line from a vendor or a consultant contracted to produce the training program.
